Sorry, i should have been more precise in my first mail.

GNU find for example uses that value. The wrong (too small) st_nlink
value was the cause for find not searching in the subdirectories of a

Now i made the st_nlink of a directory in shadowfs be the sum of the
st_nlink values of the underlying directories; find works. But in the
case that there are directory entries with duplicate names in the
underlying directories, this value is to high. So, that is acceptable?
